APOLDA EUROPEAN DESIGN AWARD 2020
Stepping Stone for talented Fashion Designers
The APOLDA EUROPEAN DESIGN AWARD takes place for the 10th time in Apolda. Since its beginning in 1993 it has become a stepping stone for talented fashion designers and is considered one of the most prestigious contests for fashion designers today.
The goal of the APOLDA EUROPEAN DESIGN AWARD is the support and promotion of the European fashion youngsters.
The contest is an initiative of the Apolda region in the county of Weimarer Land and the federal state of Thuringia. This region is recognized as a center of the German trade of knitted goods and is deeply seated in the conscience of Europe’s fashion industry. This tradition has been coined over centuries and shell be continued successfully in the future.
Since 2002 we choose only renowned European schools for this contest with graduates in fashion design. Through this clear focus the APOLDA EUROPEAN DESIGN AWARD has developed into a platform for young talents in the European fashion industry.
An important innovative component of this contest is the APOLDA DESIGNER NETWORK. This communication and presentation forum is intended to foster communication amongst the elite of the young fashion designers and known companies in the fashion industry through the use of current digital media.
In 2020 the successful concept of the APOLDA EUROPEAN DESIGN AWARD with elected schools and their fashion design graduates will be continued and developed further.
